The SYFY25: Origin Stories Podcast, hosted by Adam Savage (editor-in-chief, and former co-host of Mythbusters), is a nostalgic celebration of all things science fiction. In this podcast series Adam sits down with creators, thought leaders, and celebrity fans to discuss the moments, people, and milestones that have changed the genre universe forever. From revealing personal anecdotes to deep philosophical discussions.

Writer D.C. Fontana, one of the forerunners of televised science fiction and the woman credited with creating much of Vulcan lore, joins Adam and reminisces about the early days of Star Trek, how it led science fiction to tackle societal issues, and how Kirk, Spock, and McCoy combined to make one legendary character.
